up the latino vote. going forward in his second term, the obama administration can expect the latino community will keep a close eye on whether or not the president can deliver his promise on comprehensive immigration reform. nick valencia, cnn. >> so given the la to inknow voter support, it is no surprise the president has set immigration reform as a top priority for his second term. now gun control has also vaulted to the top of that list. those are also big priorities for los angeles mayor antonio villaraigosa. he joins me now. it's always great to see you. >> great to be with you and john and kate, as well. >> mayor, you sent a letter recently to vice president biden as he was working on his gun control proposals. you had some suggestions for him. what did you say? >> we need universal background checks. 40% of all the gun sales don't require a background check because they're private sales. we need to toughen our gun laws. we need assault weapons ban. we need to make sure that we deal with gun trafficking and what they call straw purchasers. these are people that buy guns legall
years with the obama administration with cbs. we've seen the results of that conflict of interest play out when questions are asked. >> steve: where he writes in slate, the lefty blog u got to destroy the republican party. i guess he just wants one party which would essentially make it a dictatorship. in the article he's blaming all the woes in washington on those darn republicans. i guess he's forgotten about the do nothing democrats in the u.s. senate, who haven't passed a budget in three years. i guess he forgot about the fact that the republicans actually are now talking about voting tomorrow on extending the debt limit so there is not a fight. and about how about a month ago, they raised taxes on the rich. he's forgetting all about that. he's just trying to help barak obama with a successful four years. >> right. he makes this argument in piece that republicans have been the ones standing in the way of president obama's first term agenda. if i recall correctly, president obama has spent a lot of money, there hasn't been a lotting spending cuts at all, in fact. president obama got

in the administration a man of integrity. former obama aide was chief domestic policy adviser. >> dennis traveled extensively with the president. when you spend day in and day out with someone in a high stakes, very stressful set of circumstances, you get to know them well. i think they think very similarly but at the same time they are very straightforward and honest with each other. dennis isn't afraid to challenge the president. >> barns said that while m mcdonough is known for his foreign policy shops, he will be able to handle the issues. and he knows how capitol hill works. something that will be crucial in the coming fiscal fights. now, the suspected announcement comes as the president is criticized for a lack of diversity among to have staffers. his choices for secretary of defense, secretary of defense, secretary of treasury and cia director are all men. wolf? >> athena jones at the white house with the latest on that, an important position indeed. thank you. >>> monday's inauguration is a big day for president obama. historic day for the entire country. it's also a
, and the administration lost that. the question about how much obama will get behind that. he did not mention it yesterday in his speech. he talked about climate change and suggested going in the opposite direction. the next four years may be a tough one for energy producers. guest: shall pass has become so plentiful and prices of it -- natural gas has become so plentiful and prices of it has come down so much it is changing the economics of the industry, which plays into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than cold begins to replace coal as a primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that will and gas production is higher than it has ever been, and that is true as the economy comes back. there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and job policy. that is one of the reasons why obama takes every opportunity he can to point out this clean energy proposal, because don't wait politically that the white house sees an opportunity to
in this administration ever suggested they wanted to do. david king talked about it, all of president obama's proposals were al door to door -- >> this is insane. >> david keen doesn't even believe that. david keen was like an aide to bob dole. steve stockman who got the extra dose of crazy as a member congress, he will introduce an impeachment resolution. and the nra will fund raise off of that. this is the thing. there has been a been a good amount of writing by david fromme about the right-wing as a racket, as an operation they don't care whether they win or lose. they like to take on crazy issues that can get 10, 15% of the people to give them money whether the nra continue to choose to be a racket, go for the money or choose to try to remain age organization of gun owners. if they don't, i think they will get beat again and again and again, state after state because they are so far from the mainstream. >> talking down their own site. that was the great joy of this past election day was the morning after the democrats swept most of the the races in count
